I’m writing an ebook, Its about levelling up your life – How to Earn more, Be More and Do More, It’s not finished yet but here’s a free Chapter, Let me know what you think
“From good people, you’ll learn good, but if you mingle with the bad you’ll destroy such soul as you had.”
—Musonius Rufus, Lectures, 11.53.21-22
On your quest to level up your life it’s important to choose your clan wisely.
Your clan will be the difference between climbing mountains of desire and falling into dark pits of despair.
On this quest, you might lose some members of your current clan, Let them go. This is your journey, not theirs, They might not be ready or worse they just don’t want to level up.
If that is the case you need to recognise this and leave them behind, They won’t like it that your making changes you will awaken their inner resistance and in turn, they will start to talk you out of your quest and keep you in the tavern.
They will pretend to be looking out for you pointing out all the dangers and risks but really they are pulling you into the pit.
These people are no longer your friends, They are poison and they are draining your life force.
Don’t be disheartened if some of your friends turned to foes, You will find new clan members who follow a similar path to you.
You will notice that these people talk differently, they ask different questions and they handle objections and adversity differently too.
They embrace difficulties, find solutions and give you a kick up the backside when you need it, Instead of keeping you on their level or below them, they will pull you up or push you above them when necessary so you can achieve your goals…
‘You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with’ – Jim Rohn
Level up your clan so you can level up your life
Where to find Next Level Clan Members
At the time of writing, I have two business Titan Strength Academy and a Property company. I would not have these businesses today if I didn’t embark on a new quest to climb out of the pit of despair and make some changes in my life.
My old clan hung around the pub, we mostly took the piss out of each other and talk about the next night out we were going on…
Nothing was going to level me up there, nor was the people who I was around at work, The conversation there were largely ‘I Can’t be arsed’, moaning about the company and later on when I decided to start reading… ‘What the fuck are you reading for’
To find next level members you have to go where the next level hang out…
I got my first business by working out with an old friend of mine, we had fire conversations about money, books, business, podcasts and sometimes superheroes – we shared the same path with similar visions, long story short we now have Titan Strength Academy
My second business partner, I met at a property event, once again we shared the same vision and a similar path.
Some places Next level people hang around at –
Events in your niche
Social media groups
Specialised Clubs (I.e. Cycling)
Consciously consider whom you allow into your life. Ask yourself about the people you meet and spend time with: Are they making me better? Do they encourage me to push forward and do they hold me accountable? Or do they drag me down to their level?
As the same fire assumes different shapes when it consumes objects differing in shape, so does the one self take the shape of every creature in whom he is present. – Marcus Aurelius
